  1. But her AP/EAD combo card will expire in August 2019. How can calling Infopass result in getting a new combo card? The EAD I-765 form states that it must be filed to renew the EAD, so I am not sure you understand my question.
  2. I have been searching on this site and the internet, but have found conflicting answers. We are in the process of filing another I-131 and I-765 package to renew her AP/EAD combo card, which will expire in August 2019. We have been waiting for our AOS interview to be scheduled since May 2018, but the Houston Field Office has a severe backlog and we do not want her current AP/EAD combo card to expire. I only have two questions, please help if you have gone through this process before! 1. Should I enclose $85 for new biometrics? (we know that the main filing fee is covered under my wife's pending AOS case, but the instructions for I-131 and I-765 make no mention of the whether or not to pay for new biometrics) 2. Should we still enclose the passport photos (2 for I-131 and 2 for I-765), or is this not necessary? Thanks so much for your assistance!
  3. I noticed that the direct mailing address for an I-765 renewal with category (c)(9), AOS pending, is listed as being Chicago. The issue is that I mailed my original AOS package to the MSC and not Chicago as outlined in the instructions below. There is not an alternate address given and the instructions are very confusing. Do I mail the I-765 to Chicago anyway even though the package was originally sent to MSC? Pending family-based Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Resident or Adjust Status and: You filed your application with the USCIS Chicago Lockbox, AND your receipt number begins with “MSC” OR You filed your Form I-485 with the immigration judge USCIS Chicago Lockbox For U.S. Postal Service (USPS): USCIS Attn: FBAS P.O. Box 805887 Chicago, IL 60680-4120 For FedEx, UPS, and DHL deliveries: USCIS Attn: FBAS 131 South Dearborn-3rd Floor Chicago, IL 60603-5517
  4. ok, It looks like question #24 will be "WT VISITOR" due to the ESTA agreement with Sweden. Question #25 appears to be "PAROLEE" since my wife used her AP/EAD combo card to reenter the USA. Any thoughts on this?
  5. Section #2, questions 24 & 25, on the new I-765 form asks for current status of my wife. She last entered the USA using her AP/EAD combo card. The instructions that accompany the I-765 form are not very clear on what status to use for this scenario. We are currently awaiting our interview due to an I-485 AoS. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your replies!
  6. We have been ready to schedule an interview since May 2018. Due to the Houston field office backlog for AoS interviews, I believe that we may need to renew my wife's combo card before it expires in August 2019. Do we simply submit the same I-731 and I-864 forms, and pay the same fee again? Thanks in advance for your replies!
  7. My wife and I just returned from international travel using her AP/EAD combo card and I thought it may help others if we share our experience. We traveled from Colombia to Miami and, as expected, my wife was pulled aside for secondary inspection. I was allowed to accompany her to the waiting room. The agents already had my wife's passport but returned her AP/EAD combo card. She was told to present the AP/EAD combo card to the agent in the secondary inspection waiting area when called. We waited for about 10 minutes before my wife's name was called. The agent asked to see her combo card and then returned her passport. We were then told that we were free to go. After leaving the secondary inspection area, we saw that the agent had stapled an AP document to my wife's passport, and that there was an AP stamp on one page of her passport as well. The whole experience was stressful, but uneventful. Question: why did they staple an AP document to my wife's passport and also place an AP stamp on one page? Will these stamps make future travel even easier? Thanks!
  8. Just curious where to see that I-693 is now valid for 2 years if submitted with AoS package? I can only find reference to 1 year on USCIS site. Thanks!
  9. When traveling using a combo card, should we bring original or copies of my wife’s I-797 for the AoS I-485 and AP approval forms, and our marriage license, or are copies sufficient? Thanks in advance for your help!
  10. Should my wife present her AP/EAD combo card and passport to the TSA agent during domestic travel within the USA, or simply her passport? We are awaiting our AoS interview, so I am not sure if an overstay will show up during the TSA screening at the airport? Also, she will be carrying her I-797 receipts, marriage license and AP/EAD combo card. Do we need to bring original documents (I-797 and marriage license), or will copies suffice? Thanks!
  11. My apologies, I meant the I-130A form.
  12. We sent a certified copy of our marriage license. Several weeks later we were asked by USCIS to provide the I-131A form, which our lawyer failed to include in our original package.
  13. My wife and I are waiting for our interview to be scheduled. Our case has been listed as ready to schedule since late May on the USCIS site. When the text comes that tells me our interview has finally been scheduled, will it list the date and time for the interview? Thanks!
  14. We were also required to submit the I-131A form. Not sure, but this may apply to you as well.
  15. My wife and I will be traveling internationally for a few weeks and she will be using her AP/EAD combo card to reenter the USA at the conclusion of our trip. I have heard that she will automatically be pulled aside for secondary inspection during this process, is this true? If so, what usually happens during the secondary inspection and will I be able to accompany her? Lastly, should we bring any of her other documents with us, such as the I-797 forms or our marriage certificate? We are nervous about leaving the USA, and any help to answer my questions will be greatly appreciated.
